"For vikings to enter valhalla, they had to die violently with a sword in their hand. For British people to enter British heaven, we have to do so basically completely unnoticed without causing too much of a kerfuffle."

Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
thank you, history side of tumblr.
He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.
Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.
Thank you medical side of tumblr

sometimes I want to make illogical things I learned from the young avengers fandom as a post. let’s take some examples!
like, first, if you’re a lesbian, you must announce it explicitly without any level of ambiguity. if you’re like “I’m not into boys,” it’s a statement that must be explicitly followed up. by this logic, I am always erasing my queer identity whenever I don’t mention that I’m a lesbian in every introduction I make to others.
queer people experimenting before they come to terms with their sexuality is clearly a sign of them erasing their own identities, or hating themselves, or something in-between. writers having queer characters experiment is a sign that they are homophobic and know NOTHING. so if you’re queer, make sure you don’t experiment, or you’re just badly representing yourself!
additionally, if you write a response to something another writer did in canon, you (the new writer) is the one to blame for the previous occurrence. it is YOUR FAULT for not reversing that event and therefore you’re terrible.
you are evil if you are ever attracted to someone who is already in a relationship.
it’s not suspicious AT ALL if the only characters you’re critical of are the people of color. it’s clearly the writer’s fault for making them so damn unlikable!
that about sums it up

"bisexuals have straight passing privilege"
did you mean bi erasure ?
having people constantly assume im straight or gay based on who im dating or how I dress isn’t a privilege. it’s degrading and ignorant.
Thiiiiis is important. Any privilege bisexual people get thanks to sometimes being in a relationship that appears straight is outweighed by the fact that in order to claim that privilege, they have to lie about who they are, restrict their dating pool to the opposite gender, and risk being dismissed, mocked, or even attacked if they decide to reveal their bisexuality…guess what, not only by straight people, but by gay people as well.
A privilege that demands that you deny who you really are in order to benefit from it is a very shitty privilege.
Some of these arguments are used to assign or deny the existence of privilege for white-passing individuals though, often seemingly at random. I guess the difference is that at least nobody’s arguing that mixed-race people or pale-skinned individuals from races identified with dark skin don’t exist.Source: abby-graceful
